Delicious Maple Pecan Shortbread Cookies (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)

These gluten-free and dairy-free (yes, shortbread cookies without butter!) are my favorite cookies ever.  No one would believe they are a gluten-free and dairy-free option. They have been a holiday tradition in my home for many years.  Whenever I serve them they quickly make their disappearing act!  Now I would like to share that tradition with you. I hope you love them as much as I do. Enjoy!

Delicious Maple Pecan Shortbread Cookies

1-1/2 cups pecans
1 cup coconut oil
˝ cup pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or vanilla powder (ground vanilla beans)
2-1/4 cups gluten-free flour

In a food processor, blend pecans until they form a paste. Add the remaining ingredients until thoroughly mixed. Line an 8” x 12” (or 8” x 10”) baking tray with unbleached parchment paper. Place the batter in the pan and press with your clean hands until it is evenly spread. Gently cut the batter with a knife to form triangles, rectangles, stars or diamonds. I prefer a diamond, “quilt-like” pattern. Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Allow to cool before serving. Makes approximately 24 cookies.

These sound really good. I bet you could also do them as drop cookies if you didn't have the necessary cutters.

Thanks, I just looked for GFCF shortbread at the GF aisle in the store the other day. But those GF shorbreads all had milk. This sounds wonderful.
